The Art of Prayer Meets the Prayer of Art - Sightings (Cynthia Lindner)
Art is in the eye of the beholder, or sometimes in the ear or touch of the beholder. In any case, Cynthia Lindner, who is both a Disciple of Christ minister (as am I) and a faculty member at the University of Chicago Divinity School, speaks of an exhibit at the Chicago Institute of Art on prayer. In this piece, which I invite you to read and contemplate, Lindner takes us into the exhibit and invites us to consider how it might affect us regarding prayer and human life, especially in an interfaith context. What does hearing/experiencing our own prayers and hymns in a room with a blank wall say about who we are as humans? Take, read, and reflect.
